Khan to Prince, OUT, Given out caught behind but it went of the arm-guard. Now then... now then .. What a ferocious delivery. Zaheer Khan serves up a well-directed bouncer at the face. A stunned Prince takes out the bottom-hand off the handle and offers the bat as a face-shield. The ball crashes into the arm-guard and pops up to Dhoni. It has been given out. Prince staggers out towards Smith, perhaps asking whether we have UDRS here. No. And off he goes.

AG Prince c †Dhoni b Khan 0 (19m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 5/1   GC Smith 5* (17b)   Z Khan 2.3-1-1-1

Khan to Smith, OUT, No doubt this time. The death knell. It landed on a length around the off stump line, cut in and caught Smith out. Smith was very tentative in defense, moved his arms rather awkwardly and got the bat in an angle. The ball moved through the bat and pad gap to clean up the stumps. Clatter! Good ball, poor defensive effort.

GC Smith b Khan 6 (29m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

South Africa 6/2   HM Amla 0* (3b)   Z Khan 3.3-2-1-2

Harbhajan Singh to Kallis, OUT, Kallis misses the double ton. Again. This one turned from outside off, he shaped to defend but got a thick inside edge on to the pad and it popped up to Vijay at short-leg. Kallis might have dawdled today but he was magnificent yesterday.

JH Kallis c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 173 (419m 351b 15x4 2x6) SR: 49.28

South Africa 346/3   HM Amla 154* (298b 15x4)   Harbhajan Singh 27.2-1-96-1

Sehwag to de Villiers, OUT, went down the track, reached out for the delivery well outside off stump and tried to loft it over the bowler but got a leading edge to backward point. Simple catch. Sehwag is delighted.

AB de Villiers c Badrinath b Sehwag 53 (104m 88b 5x4 0x6) SR: 60.22

South Africa 454/4   HM Amla 203* (379b 19x4)   V Sehwag 10.1-1-34-1

Harbhajan Singh to Duminy, OUT, flighted from round the stumps, on the middle and leg line, Duminy misses the sweep shot and is struck right in front of the middle. Hawk eye suggests it would have bounced over the off stump. Hmm...

JP Duminy lbw b Harbhajan Singh 9 (38m 35b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.71

South Africa 476/5   HM Amla 214* (409b 20x4)   Harbhajan Singh 39.5-1-145-2

Khan to Boucher, OUT, Boucher top edges his slog. It was the slower one, full and outside off, Boucher went for the good-old ugly slog over midwicket and edged it over cover where Mishra took the catch

MV Boucher c Mishra b Khan 39 (86m 75b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.00

South Africa 554/6   HM Amla 250* (470b 22x4)   Z Khan 30.2-7-93-3
